For many years, I also frequented the nail salon.  I regularly had some kind of tip on whether it was an acrylic or a gel nail, I was never really sure what they were actually putting on my nails.  I enjoyed the look of a nice bright pink color for spring or a deep burgundy for the fall time.The only problem that I was having was that when I had the nails removed, my nails were so weak and damaged from having them done at the salon.  The drilling and scraping had literally taken layers off of my nails.  I would try different nail strengtheners, truly wishing I could have my own natural nails.  I often didn’t have the time and sometimes the money to constantly go to the nail salon.   I had also begun hearing things about toxic free nail polish and 5 free!  I didn’t realize that some of the polishes and chemicals that had been used by the salons were also toxic and bad for my health.  Yikes!

Thankfully it was around this time that I saw a post go through a friends timeline about a healthy non toxic one step gel polish.  I decided to check it out!  Well not only did I become a customer, but I decided pretty quickly that this was a product that more women should know about, so I became a distributor.  Ladies, I haven’t looked back!  I had no idea that so many women would be looking for another option than salon nails, and for many different reasons.  Professional working women have the money, but no time to go the the salon, my organic friends love the fact that its non toxic, 5 free and kid friendly!  There are so many reasons that this Gel Polish system is becoming so popular!   Now with the coronavirus that is affecting all of us, its time to take your manicures home!  You can have beautiful nails in 1 step, 1 coat and it cures in 45 to 60 seconds.  I am so glad I found it and if you would like to know more please connect with me I would love to share it with you!   Here is a sampling of some nails done by customers and distributors!

Are Gel Manicures Safe?

With sales of nail polish nearing $900 million a year in the United States alone,  there’s a sea of painted fingernails out there. But spending your cash on polish that chips or flakes in a couple of days can be a waste of time and money. Now, women have the option of gel polishes that offer 2 to 4 weeks of staying power.  However, some of the gel polishes out there can be more harm than good.  Its important to pick the right Gel Polish!

Although gel manicures can be beautiful and long-lasting, they can be tough on nails. Gel manicures can cause nail brittleness, peeling and cracking, and repeated use can increase the risk for skin cancer and premature skin aging on the hands.

The downside with gel manicures stems from the crucial UV-curing step. A recent study found that the cumulative damage from the light frequencies the nail lamps emit can cause DNA damage to the skin that can result in premature aging and possibly cancer.  UV lamps should be avoided.

More than just nail health,  opt for total body health,” Be careful and aware of  the “toxic trio” carcinogens that are present in many polishes: Formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). These ingredients were found to cause inflammation along with many other adverse side effects like disturbing liver and thyroid function for example,”

Nail damage is another downside of salon Gel Polish  One study found significant thinning of people’s nail plates after gel polish application. The cause isn’t clear, but it could be a result of the polish remover.   Another cause may be if the gels are incorrectly removed.   Which, if you’ve ever scrubbed at your regular polish with some acetone, you already know how drying it is  after just a few minutes.
